What we’re looking for:
- We’re looking for someone with a maker mentality, who wants to join a company full of diverse, intelligent and talented people. Someone who wants to shake things up and fill their days with problem solving, innovation and phenomenal client projects. Someone who is ready to do the best work of their life…. things they are really and genuinely proud of, with opportunities to travel far and wide, learn every day and to really and truly meet their potential.
We also need:

- hands-on practical experience in the Sitecore space. You are considered by our technical staff as first-amongst-equals.
- you’re certified and, ideally, you’re recognized as an MVP somewhere in the world.
- ability to work with dispersed teams in different locations and working with different cultures.
- an MSc in engineering or similar and at least 15 years of relevant working experience
